    Summary

    Leonard, miserably divorced, finally gives in to his hospital colleagues' requests to join them at a luxurious pleasure house. He's put off by the experience until the Madam offers to get him a boy, and the one that arrives at his room is nothing like he'd imagined.

    Jim had always followed three rules when it came to selling his body: Don’t give the client your real name, don’t deny the client anything, and definitely—obviously—don’t fall for the client. It’s never been difficult to stick to those rules until Jim finds himself working in a house full of girls, servicing a man he calls Bones.

    Summary

    How could he have forgotten?

    Those deep blue eyes that irately reminded him of the ocean. Those long black lashes and soft white skin that resembled the fine porcelain in Lance’s hand. That hair, dark and messy and too long. And that face. That damn face that was too damn pretty to belong to a boy.

     

    In which Keith is arranged to marry Lance's eldest sister and invites the family to stay at his ocean-side manor for the summer. And Lance soon learns that Keith is no stranger, but a ghost from his past.

    Summary

    "Fairview was the finest friend a man could have, and the finest battle-companion. I dared not risk doing anything that might break our friendship."

    On a hot summer's day, on a high hill surrounded by the enemy, the best battle-companion can turn out to be the truth.

    Rook and Fairview have worked alongside each other for years, first as officers in the navy, then as officers on a steamship, and finally as colonels in an invading army. Members of a nation where tiny differences in rank are considered all-important, the two men defy convention by treating each other as equals.

    But now their life-long bond is about to meet its greatest strain, when they are ordered to seize and defend a hill whose landscape is unknown, in the company of soldiers who may be incompetent or treacherous. Will Rook and Fairview's friendship remain by the end of the battle? Or will their lives take an unexpected detour as they struggle to survive on Spy Hill?

    Rated mature for violence. I'm serializing this novella weekly, but it's completely written and edited.

    Summary

    "This is the right place for you, boy. They'll school you here to be a right-standing man, one who can keep control over his actions, like any good man should. You just got to keep yourself open to learn and to grow."

    How far can trust grow, when you're in a place you despise?

    Arrested for a crime he doesn't regret, Bat ends up handcuffed to a group of fellow city boys and sent on a long journey into the countryside. He knows that he is being transported to a prison for delinquent servant boys, but what form will his imprisonment take?

    Tattooed with the rank-mark of servant, Bat must learn how to keep from losing his temper with the men who carry the keys to his freedom. But in the unbelievable world where he has been deposited, in which a genial master orders strict punishments and a servant acts like a master, will Bat be able to locate the door to his release? Which of his fellow prisoners can he trust to help him?

    And will he survive long enough to find out?

    Inspired by true events at a turn-of-the-century reform school, this novella (short novel) is set in an alternative version of the Chesapeake Bay region during the 1910s.

    Summary

    "The High Seeker surely could not know in full what Vito was thinking and planning. If he'd known, he'd have ordered Vito strapped to a rack."

    It was his duty to transform the prisoner's soul. But which one?

    When Vito de Vere is assigned a prisoner who is not quite what he appears to be, Vito must penetrate the mystery of his prisoner's unexpected appearance in the Eternal Dungeon, arrested for a crime that is no crime.

    But Vito himself is hiding a mystery from the other members of the dungeon. Increasingly filled with tenderness toward his vulnerable prisoner, can Vito accomplish his secret mission without sacrificing his prisoner?

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Includes an illustration by Everybery in the end notes. I'm serializing this novella weekly, but it's completely written and edited.

    Summary

    There is an invisible magic circle in the world, one that Elsa draws around herself to keep Anna out.

Her friendship with her reveals secrets that may just give Anna the way to break through Elsa's "magic circle."

    A recast of When Marnie Was There, leaning slightly more on the novel by Joan G Robinson than the Studio Ghibli anime, but heavily influenced by the wistful mood of the film.
